House OKs Spending Bill to Fund Government, but 90 Republicans Vote No

On 03.22.18 03:50 PM posted by Thomas Phippen

The House approved a $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill Thursday to fund the government through September, allowing federal offices to stay open at the weekend but hampering some of President Donald Trumpís agenda items.

The House*approved*the so-called omnibus bill by a vote of 256-167, but most of the dissenting votes came from Republicans, who hold the majority, not Democrats.

Ninety Republican members voted against the spending bill, compared to 77 dissenting Democrat votes. (Here is the list.)

In total, 145 Republicans and 111 Democrats voted in favor of the 2,234-page bill, which House leadership released only Wednesday night.

>>> Update: The Senate*passed the massive spending bill by a vote of 65-35 early Friday morning after taking 11 hours to consider it, sending the package to President Donald Trump, who unexpectedly threatened a veto because it failed to address the so-called “Dreamers” and significant border wall funding.
